Vintage Royal Albert Teacup

I purchased a pretty vintage Royal Albert "Tea Rose" teacup
 and an embroidered tea towel at
Meadowlark Tea House and Antiques in Vancouver, WA.
I was so happy to find these!
I love both the cup and the tea towel.
I would have purchased more teacups
if I could have packed them in my luggage.

By the way, we purchased an additional suitcase to bring back our purchases.
Did I mention Nordstrom's was having their BIG anniversary sale
while we were in Portland?
The boys went a little crazy on shoe bargains.

A favorite Royal Albert pattern! Love the tea towel - what a great idea to have tea towels that match favorite teacups.

Such a pretty tea cup... and love the embroidery. I'm always so happy to find tea themed embroidery, it doesn't happen too often!

The tea towel matches the yellow rose teacup perfectly! So lovely together!

I stay far, far away from Nordstrom's and their sales. Very dangerous. Love the teacup and the towel goes so well with it.

Hi Linda,
I found that same cup this summer; love it! The tea towel is pretty too.

Oh, how pretty! I think those old Royal Albert cup and saucer sets are some of the finest ones I've seen--and the tea towel goes with it just perfectly!
